The Name They Go By – Charles Spurgeon

by | January 24, 2018

A boy in the streets, selling mince-pies, kept crying, ““Hot mince-pies!”” A person bought one of them, and found it quite cold. “”Boy,”” said he, “”why do you call these pies hot?”” ““That’s the name they go by, sir,”” said the boy. So there are plenty of people who are called Christians, but they are not Christians——that’s the name they go by; but all the substance is drained out of them by other matters.
